It builds them anyway -- though 'builds' is the wrong word, since it
requests them, gets the data direct from cache, and moves on.
In the SVN version, rather than being a remote URL request (often to a
local server) seed() uses the internal methods of TileCache to request
the tiles. This means that it is much closer to 'recognizing' the
existin cache, because you don't have all the overhead of going to a
server to find out if the tile is there or not.
